In the words of Julie Foudy, “Sports not only build better athletes but also better people.”
In 2019, IIT Kharagpur and IIT Bhubaneswar will co-host the 54th edition of Inter IIT Sports Meet. 10 sports will be organised by IIT Kharagpur while the rest 4 by IIT Bhubaneswar.
With 53 years of legacy, Inter IIT sports meet is an intense battle to victory as the best minds of the country prove their mettle in sports. Born in 1961, with only 5 IITs mustering a participation of 500 students in its first edition hosted by IIT Bombay, the event has grown steadily since.
In 2019, IIT KGP and IIT BBS will host the 54th edition of this premiere event. This time the meet is expanding in all it’s domains.
The stakes are high this time, as each and every IIT wishes to take the trophy back home. There will be 14 sports where students can showcase their skills.
